The Establishment is made up of the Rich and powerful.
It used to be the King, Church and Aristocrats. They have been usurped by wealthy, powerful business people (mainly men).
The Aim Of The Establishment
The aim of the Establishment is very simple; they wish to ensure that they retain and increase their wealth and power.
The Nature Of The Establishment
They are intrinsically conservative.
They want to ensure that the ordinary people are subservient, productive and quiescent. They do not wish to be challenged.
The Tactics Of The Establishment
They control through the media. They use propaganda and psychological pressure.
They control by establishing a hierarchy. They dangle the promise of advancement in wealth and power up to various levels.
They control politicians through the propaganda machine, through donations, bribes and threats.
They deploy force.
Why I am opposed To The Establishment
The Establishment creates war, division and conflict in order to further its ends.
The Establishment creates massive environmental damage.
They create a world of massive inequality leading to mass poverty, disease, death and destruction.
They promote consumerism and shallowness.
They do not want education to create questioning, enquiring minds. It has to be limited to specific knowledge and acquisition of skills to enable productivity.
People are pawns to be deployed to do the work, create wealth and provide cannon fodder.
They want people distracted with trivia, pop music, soaps, phones, computer games…………………
How Does The Establishment Operate?
Disdain and greed.
The Establishment and Politics.
Most political parties were set up by the Establishment to safeguard the interests of the Establishment. These include the Tories, Republicans and Democrats.
The Labour Party was formed out of the Trade Unions in order to represent ordinary working people.
Socialism and communism are anti-establishment.
Communism has unfortunately created totalitarian tyrannies in both China and Russia that have not worked in the interests of ordinary people. They have replaced one hierarchy with another.
For me, Democratic Socialism is the only way to create a fairer society in which the assets are not automatically directed to the Establishment.
The Establishment works very hard to undermine socialism. They use the media and finance to undermine the concept.
It’s time the people asserted themselves.
The present wave of extreme right-wing populism plays straight into the hands of the Establishment.
Time to think.
